Howdy

Way north side of Twin Cities metro.

Our shop is far enough out, next to a small regional air port and railroad line that we have had Grew Wolf tracks in the back yard of the shop. Local Conservation Officer confirmed the tracks, and said there is tracks quite often, but no visual sightings yet.

Snowing here in North Central MN right now, it rained most of the morning. Hubby (an OTR truck driver) was in the middle of the ice storm yesterday, took a couple of slides.

Snowed here last night, we have about 2 new inches of snow. Getting colder too. Even my Alaskan Malamutes didn't want to go out (again) this morning. Wonder if they would prefer Florida???

I'd love to see your farm! But we live all the way up here and I don't drive very far from home anymore...RA has me in it's grips. Coffee sounds good too!

Snow/rain is supposed to miss us this week but SE is going to get it...again.

Several of us are meeting near Hinckley later this month. PM me for details if interested.

Bright sunny day here in the woods. Yesterday we couldn't get above 40 and now it's almost 80 out there! Guess the snow is finished for awhile.

BTW...would like to ask you, what's the best part about the area in MN that you live? Is it the people, fishing, farming, gardening....??
